Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Check in to a Whistler Architect designed Timber Frame property with endless luxury amenities and Rocky Mountain Views. Accommodates skier/rider trips and/or the relaxing family vacation in winter or summer. With multiple families in mind the owners made 3 master suites (2 kings,1 queen) with private baths and an additional 2 bedrooms (1 queen, 2 twins) with a shared large 2 sink bathroom. There are 4 full baths, 1 half Bath, and one 3 person Steam Room/Shower ensuring there is never a queue on a fresh powder morning. Enjoy our covered balcony to stargaze or grill in any weather. Apres' ski is simple: Ski to the back of the house, warm up in front of the wood stove, get a massage in the dedicated private therapy room, soak in the steam room, or sit in the covered outdoor Hot Tub.

The active owners skied one day on a Blue Bird powder day in 2002 and quickly realized Kicking Horse had everything to be a true winter and summer destination. In the winter there are endless powder days, great wide open beginner and intermediate terrain, world class skate and traditional XC sking trails, mild winter temperatures and convenient access to everything you need for a stress-free vacation. In the summer enjoy gondola served hiking and biking making Kicking Horse one of the few places that you can use the mountain year round. Or visit the Grizzly Bear refuge on the mountain or hike to a local glacier. Being located in the Columbia River Valley and near the Kicking Horse River offers the opportunity for White Water Rafting and Jetboating only 10 kilometers away. Also access 4 national parks (Glacier, Banff, Lake Louise, Yoho) all within a 1.5 hours drive.

Local area restaurants serve great local inspired cuisine offering dishes featuring locally raised Bison as well as directly sourced West Coast Salmon. Sip local wines from the Okanagan, BC region and dine at the highest restaurant in Canada (Eagles Eye).

Comfortable, well equipped home in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

The home is pretty much as described on the listing. It is spacious and well appointed, with all the essentials.

There is plenty of room for 10 adults, though some share a bath.

Being on a ski hill, the property is probably a little better suited to winter use than mid-summer. This summer was especially hot and the province was plagued by wildfires. Smoke filled the valleys. As a result, the home tended to get quite hot and some of us had difficulty sleeping comfortably as there is no air conditioning. I would recommend you bring small fans you can place in the windows if you are visiting under similar circumstances. Better, perhaps the homeowner could provide fans.

Aside from that, our visit was all we hoped for. Our hiking group was unable to get into some of the areas we had planned to hike due to the fires and smoke so we may well return next year to try again. If we do, we will certainly consider staying here again.

The house was beautiful with plenty of room, great location and amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Greg (the owner) was very helpful in recommending restaurants and activities for my group as well as answering any questions we had. We love the outdoors and this location did not dissapoint. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. Great views from the balcony. We enjoyed golfing, the golden golf course was under a ten minute drive. Would recommend to anybody staying in the area.

This lovely home is situated in a quiet mountain area surrounded by scenic wonders. The house is clean and fully equipped with everything you need. It's perfect for families. We were vacationing with two small children as well as teenagers and adults and it was just right for us.

Book this house!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 10 powderhounds and Greg's property worked well for our crew. From the steam room, hot tub, big eat-in kitchen, this well located property is great for a group. We did one day of heli skiing w/ Purcell which added to fantastic experience. The hike up T2 will also not be forgotten. Lots of room here and would recommend for families and groups!

Wonderful spot for our Christmas Family vacation for 7 nights.

  • 5 of 5

Our Christmas vacation was a hit spending it in this amazing home for 7 nights. ..The beautiful scenary was easily displayed through the large windows in the great room and the kitchen. The kitchen supplied lots of room to cook meals and have gathers for all to share... All the bedroom were comfortable and easily fit our large family. The hot tub and steam room added great enjoyment after long and hard ski/snowboard days. We would love to return and highly recommend it to anyone. December 2016
